Stitching Progress/Exchange!

I have stitched some more this week on my SAL with Sally and Angela. LHN's Winter Band Sampler. I am still loving this one. Really pleased to hear that Diane from LHN is going to do another year of ornaments, not that I have stitched any of this years yet lol.



When I wasn't stitching on my LHN I started a Lizzie Kate Baby Sampler for my cousin whose baby is due middle of November. I just need to stitch the name and date of birth when I know and I will then frame it.



I can, I hope, reveal what I received in the Stitched with Love exchange, from Lainey. Thank you Lainey. I love it all.



This is what I sent to Loretta, who I am pleased to say loved what I sent her.



Thank you for Lainey and Colleen for organising this exchange.

Until next time, happy stitching

It was a great Fall/Halloween exchange wasn't it? I really enjoyed looking at what everyone had sent/received.
I'm very pleased that there will be more LHN ornies next year but like you, I've yet to stitch one from this year and it's November tomorrow! Oops!

Your WBS is looking lovely Lesleyanne. I did a bit more this morning at craft club. I nearly didn't go as I wasn't feeling too good but decided it was better than sitting at home moping lol!

Both the exchanges are lovely.

I've just ordered the LHN Snow In Love ornament. I adore that one! I can't wait to see what next year's are like.

Love the baby sampler.
